(CBS) - The reports about Kate Middleton wearing an Alexander McQueen wedding dress has centered on UK Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, who is allegedly responsible for the idea.

According to the Telegraph, Schulman was approached by Buckingham Palace for her recommendation on who should make the bride's gown and suggested Sarah Burton, the chief designer of the McQueen fashion house.

The British label has denied the report it won the assignment, but it's possible that  it  is trying to help keep the details of Middleton's dress under wraps.

Schulman, whose voice is highly regarded in the industry, has lent designer advice for other high-profile projects.

She is responsible for introducing Range Rover to Spice Girl-turned-fashion-designer Victoria Beckham, who was appointedcreative design executive for the British car maker's Evoque model last July.
